Another pic from my daughter…saying hey to her mom! 😊💜💜💜🥰🤗💕
After I shared with my daughter what Dragon Warrior had written to me yesterday and the pic she drew for me, it inspired her to draw a few pics herself and write this original poem. She wrote it with me in mind and to my unborn grandbaby, her first soon to-be-born child.😄😭🥰🤗💙 She is due at the end of October!
I am one happy Moma here to see my girl back to writing and drawing. I sure hope she makes a habit of it from now on!🙏 She has given me permission to share with you.
(Sophie, I tried to reblog what you wrote to me, but was unable. Will figure it out soon! Thanks again sweet girl! 💜💕
A Child’s Desire By: Chelsea Greene
“Be patient. You have to stand in line.”
“When can I meet her?”
“Will she be pretty?”
“Yes, one of a kind.”
“Will she make me soup when I won’t feel well?”
“She will, and so much more, only time will tell.”
“I cant wait to meet her, is that her down below?”
“Yes little one, I’m preparing a space for you to grow.”
“Oh she’s so pretty.. but she’s missing something you see.”
“Ah yes, she isn’t ready just yet, just leave that to me.”
“Wow. My very own mother. Does she know me yet?”
“There’s enough love in her heart for you. Love you’ll never forget.”
“But if she doesn’t know I’m coming, won’t she be mad?”
“It’ll surprise her for sure, but it wont be bad.”
“Wheres my daddy? I don’t see him yet!”
“You see, your father is still young.. and he hasn’t found her yet.”
“I’m growing so impatient. I want her warm hugs right away!”
“For now you must look out for her until I send you away.”
“I’ve been waiting here forever. Oh look theres my dad now!”
“Watch the way he treats her. If you want to know how to love, he will show you how.”
“They are dancing in the rain. I long to be there.”
“Ah yes. Their Love is beautiful, you’ll see. They really do show how much they care.”
“Is it my time yet? I think I’m ready!”
“I’ll send you in a minute. Hush now. Keep steady.”
“Gosh my very own mother and father.. I’m lucky to have them even if it isn’t today.”
“Close your eyes my dear.. and start to drift away.”
“I’m starting to feel sleepy. I’m yawning quite a bit.”
“I’m glad that you could wait. Our conversations, I’ll never forget.”
“Goodbye. It’s been a good one, I’m ready to embrace their love.”
“Goodbye child. We will meet again. But until then I’ll be watching you all from above.”
Hey guys it’s me, the emotional basket case here. 🤦🏼♀️ Hope you’ve all had a great weekend. ✌️
I have debated if I should even share this with you, because heaven forbid there will be some who think I’ve finally went over the brink. But here goes…Here’s my heart out on my sleeve. 💜
This has been a very emotional weekend for me, to say the least! It really started the day my brother and I went to my doctors appointment.
We were passing through a parking lot after the appointment, and there was a guy sitting on the curb underneath a shade tree, holding up a sign. Help…I’m hungry.
At first, I realized I didn’t have any cash but $1. Tears came to my eyes. I pulled around to the other side and told my brother I was sorry for the waterworks. I parked and dug around for change. Together, we scratched up around $4 in change, plus the $1 bill. We gave it to him. And moved on.
I’ve felt God just tugging at me ever since. Maybe it’s my own long trials that are getting the best of me…
And then Friday evening happened.
Saturday was my husband’s birthday, and he had taken off Friday, for a doctors visit. As it turns out, the appointment had actually been for the day before and not even in our town office. It had been at the one an hour away. My husband had thought he had an appointment here.
He had expressed his desire for that with the doctor, but the doctor had failed to let the front desk know this. So, we both assumed…🤦🏼♀️🤷♀️
We were both dressed up, out and about, so I suggested we go for birthday dinner. We decided to go over to the next town over which is also an hour’s drive away. Afterwards, he wanted a milkshake from Dairy Queen.
As we pulled into a parking space, my hubby said, “Get a load of what that girl is wearing!” I looked up to notice a rather questionable character loitering to the right of the entrance.
As we made our way to the front door, it was very obvious the way she was dressed she was either on drugs, a prostitute or both–my guess is both. She watched us as we approached her, looking down as we got closer.
She had some type of a long, lightweight robe on and what looked to be a nude pantyhose body suit underneath. She pulled her robe together as we got close enough to her.
Something got a hold of me! A very strong thought came to me, “Speak to her. Look her straight in her eyes and show her my love.”
So I did–I looked her straight in the eyes and I said, “Hey, how are you?” She looked me straight in the eyes also, and looked back down. “Oh, I can’t complain,” she said back to me. I said, “That’s right!”
We continued to walk on inside and to the front counter to order. All the workers were teenagers who laughed and joked with us. When we ordered, they told us that they were sorry but were fresh out of all the ingredients! We realized they were joking and picked back with them.
They said, ” Did you guys notice our visitor out front?” We said that we had. One of the girls went on to say that a breeze had blown her robe up in the back, and they had seen her behind! I told them it was really sad.
Yes, something had a hold of me…It bothered me to the point, I could not even enjoy my ice cream. 😢
We had sat down, and I was fighting back the tears. It hit me she needed to hear that she was God’s little princess, so I got my phone out and started copying down the words to my poem on a piece of paper from my purse.
My husband asked me what I was doing, and I told him she needed to hear something from the blog. We had seen she had walked away from the entrance. He said, “She’s probably long gone by now, Renee.”
I said, “Well maybe so, but I feel like she needs to hear this.” So I wiped a couple tears away, and in between this, a little girl in the booth next to us who was obviously someone’s little granddaughter– cute as a button–She entertained us while we were there. We finally made our way out the door.
I looked around for this woman as we got into the car, but didn’t see her. I asked my husband, and I don’t usually do this, to drive around the building.
I needed to find her. I know he thought I was crazy. Maybe he was right…
Sad to say, we didn’t find her and we left. I struggled to hold back my emotions. I told him to keep helping me to look for her.
Maybe she had walked somewhere down the road or someone had already picked her up.🤷♀️
My husband said, “Renee, that woman was probably 40 years old, she doesn’t need anybody to keep up with her.” At this point I burst out crying! (I told you I was an emotional wreck!) I told him in between the tears, that may be so, but she is still somebody’s baby!
I let it all out! Crazy as it may seem! I wiped my eyes with a kleenex. It has haunted me for two days now. I’ve prayed for this girl.
Who knows she might have been an angel, or it could’ve been God trying to stir something up within me that needs to be stirred.
I don’t have any answers, I just know that I have no stones to throw!
There are so many hurting in this world! Even some of you right now, may be at whit’s end reading this. You have so many problems, you don’t even know where to begin to find the answers or relief.
Only God can take those wounded places in your heart and mend them. Soothe them with His healing Balm of Gilead. Only He can take that brokenness and turn it into something that can be used for Him.
We each have a story to tell, that can reach the world around us.
Today, I’m praying for that Little Princess who has lost her way. I pray she finds healing, compassion and help, wherever she is.
Because she’s somebody’s baby.
“If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.”
1 Corinthians 13

Matt’s Questions to Me:
1. If I could visit you in your hometown, where would we go? (This is gonna be a long one!) First, I would take you to my place of worship. 😄
Then, I would take you to eat at one of the several restaurants in town…Rocky Creek Catfish has the best fried catfish you will EVER eat! It has a cabin decor that has Christmas decorations and nostalgia up all year long and a unique Gift Shop.
Landmark Cafe–an old seafood eating establishment.
I would also take you on a tour of the courthouse.
And also City Hall where the official Christmas Tree lighting takes place every year and Christmas Parade Party.
This is where the train comes through at the nature trail.
This still stands in front of the now Chinese restaurant. 😁
I even heard Elvis and John Wayne had a go at it!?😎🤷♀️
*None of these pics are mine this time. 🙂
2. What is your blog about? It started out with my heart tokens from God. It’s a mix of random and everything in between.😁
3. If you could travel to another country, which one and why? already answered.
4. Who would you most like to spend a day with? My Grandma who passed when I was 12. I would have liked to get to know her better.
5. If Jesus were to knock on your door for a visit, what would you think? That I had died and went to heaven?!…Well, seriously, I would think that instead of Him sending me his love tokens this time that He had decided to just send Himself! ❤️🤗

Well, I hope this was a fine summer day for you, my friends! It has rained the later part of the afternoon and just quit not long ago–complete with thunder and lightning. 😦
A doctor’s appointment was on the agenda today, so into the city my kid brother and I went. I got my first allergy shot. 😢
After the tests I had done with my last scare, I realized my $500 deductible had probably been met…almost…anyways. 🙄
So my bloodwork was tested for airborne allergies. Turns out I’m highly allergic to dust.
But the strange part is, when I told the nurse I couldn’t understand why the test didn’t show my allergy to cigarette smoke (and most other smoke), she says, “Oh we don’t test for that. Most everyone is allergic to that. There is no cure for it.”
Well, glory be!🤷♀️ I guess shoot this poor horse and put it out its misery! 😂🐴 🤦🏼♀️
There are a few more things I know I’m allergic to, that apparently was not tested for.
Wild honeysuckle. (And I love the smell!😩😭 So, I just have to get my fix from honeysuckle candles or wax warmers–don’t worry, it’s not the real scent, so I’m good 🙂)
Cedar breaks my hands out if I don’t wear gloves. Bleach bathroom cleaner messes with my sinuses these days. Some food allergies as well.
It seems we have to help ourselves these days! But anyways, moving along…
My brother and I stopped in for Chinese at Panda Express. Neither of us had eaten there before. I have eaten at several other Chinese restaurants, but this had a small Piccadilly cafeteria feel.
Lil Bro is famous for giving me the ole ‘Rabbit Ears’ pose!
Bro got the Kung Pao Chicken (something with hot peppers) and mine was the Panda Express Honey Walnut Shrimp. 😋 He’s killing those chop-sticks by the way! I had my trusty fork!
We both got the Chow Mein noodles, and I got the crispy wonton appetizer.😜
It was good to spend one-on-one time with just my brother and me–even if it was for a doctors visit.
I hit a 50% off sale for my new grandson who is still baking in the oven 🙂 It won’t be long till the baby shower!
Well, I’m about to turn in for the night. We are heading out of state tomorrow to see my daughter, Angel and the Grands! Easton will be starting kindergarten this year.🥳😢
Sweet dreams my friends! 😴
Have you ever had one of those forgetful moments? 👵 Maybe old age creeping up on you?🤷♀️
I was almost ready, and putting the finishing touching on my hair when it hit me like a stick of dynamite 🧨 🤜💥
–No church tonight, due to several members being out of state for NAYC services! 🤦🏼♀️ Into the pjs I went 😂
Today was a special day for my first grandchild! The big “5!”
Happy Birthday Easton! Nonna loves you Lil Man!🥰💋
We video chatted on Messenger and played this funny Hamburger game on there. We both took turns trying to eat all the hamburgers that came out onto the screen. The more you ate the chubbier your cheeks got!
I look a hot mess here! Don’t judge 😂😆😝
Hopefully we get to see them all this weekend–daughter and all the grand babies.🥰
Hope you all have peaceful dreams tonight! 😴 💤
